#JusJoJan 2019 Daily Prompt – Jan. 1st

***

Your prompt for JusJoJan 2019, January 1st, is whatever you want to write. If you haven’t already posted about your New Year’s resolutions, this would be an excellent time to do it! Have fun!

It’s back! Just Jot It January is a fun challenge, hosted by Linda G. Hill. The rules are simple…just attach a pingback to anything you post/write every day in January. That’s it. You will also get to see what everyone else blogs about this month. It’s fun.  See details at the above link and join in the fun!

So the prompt mentions resolutions for the new year. I don’t make any, because I’m sure I wouldn’t keep them up after a day or so.

I always have good intentions and plans for things to do, and can get started on them, but then get distracted by other things, and never finish up the first things.

Maybe I should just say I have some ideas, and go with that. Here are a few…

  • Write a few more stories and poems this year (may or may not post them here). I’ve gotten distracted by all the fun blog challenges, which I love to do, but keeping up with them all takes time, and time away from other kinds of writing. So, we’ll see how it goes.
  • Get rid of stuff from closets and drawers. Try to get organized a bit. Things I’ve kept for scrap books, either put them in one, or throw the stuff away. Umm-hmm…
  • Plant some seeds in the spring. I like trying to grow things, even if I’m not good at it. I’ll try again this year.
  • Get back to doing more art projects and crafts. I have several things to paint, put together, and blank books to draw in. Fun, but getting started is a problem, and I keep putting it off saying maybe tomorrow…
  • Here’s a nice idea…send actual letters through the mail to people I know. I used to write lots of letters before email came along. I like getting fun mail, so I imagine other people would like to get letters, too.

Anyway, that’s my thoughts for this first day of January & Just Jot It!

My Peace & Love bracelet/watch, given to me by my daughter. The back of the watch is a peace sign. All it needs is a new battery.

Another necklace watch I have. It isn’t old, but I thought it had a nice design, as it looks like a key.

This month’s challenge, hosted by Becky, is all about things to do with the word ‘time’. Thanks, Becky!

Instructions for joining in are below…it’s easy and fun! 🙂

Just a little clock I have. It’s heavier than it looks, as it is made of crystal. It is 3 inches tall, one inch wide, and 4 inches long. I estimate it weighing about a pound.

There is only one rule, your photograph must be square!

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

  1. Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
  2. Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
  3. Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
  4. Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

I will be posting daily and it would be fabulous if you could too, but don’t worry if you can’t as weekly posts, sporadic posts or even one post at the end of the month are all timely!

 

Don’t forget to keep your photograph square and to pingback to one of my time posts.

Poem # 13

LOST IN A CORN MAZE

~

Corn husks rustle, left and right…

Forsaken on this cold, dark night…

Alone…

All alone…

I realize they hypnotize…

Throwing magic into my eyes…

Alone…

All alone…

Is synchronicity a possibility?

Is this accidental, or just incidental?

Alone…

All alone…

I must take action, cause a distraction;

I need interaction; I feel I’m in traction…

Alone…

All alone…

I must use my senses, to break down defenses,

and break free from this agony…

Alone…

All alone…

This test will only make me stronger,

And from this mess, I’ll be lost here no longer…

Alone…

All alone…

Oh, I’m just a scarecrow, who’s biding my time…

Trying to find reason, out of the rhyme…

Alone…

All alone…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost in my mind…

So lost in a corn maze,

So lost to my kind…

Alone…

All alone…
